Apoplast movement

Find the wrong one.

(1) Dependent on gradient

(2) Water movement is through mass flow

(3) The continuous stream of water gets tension when water is absorbed by root hairs

(4) Mass flow of water occurs due to adhesive and cohesive properties of water

Difficulty Level:


Symplastic movement is slower than apoplastic movement

(1) Because it involves cytoplasmic streaming always

(2) Molecule has to enter through the cell membrane

(3) Because it is down the gradient

Difficulty Level:


Most of the movement in roots through apoplast is due to

(1) Cortical cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(2) Endodermal cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(3) Pericycle cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement

(4) Medullary cells are loosely packed and hence no resistance to water movement
